Blingo

The Mother near the mother load of D&D coffee!
Yup, I just made up another word!  I had to come out of the blogging retirement of a big move, so why not a new word.  Actually, this isn't a new word, just a new word to you.  Back when I first started to blog I remember telling The Mother all about it.  She was at first confused what a blog was, since, well, the word blog doesn't sound like anything real at all.  Once I explained to her that blog stands for web log, she got it.  Then we started to joke about all of the new lingo floating around that is related to technology, and that people could actually study this.  We decided that this new area of study would be called blingo, short for web lingo.  If you study blingo you would be called a blingologist.  This thought all came back to me when I was recently reading a blog about twitter.  This blogger admitted that for the longest time when they read about "apps" they thought people were talking about appetizers!  How funny, and we all know that tons of people must have thought this same thing! 

Here's to The Mother, maybe one day you will become a blingologist - you could make a mighty fine one!

Enjoy ~SJ

This has nothing to do with Blingo, but it does have to do with the mother load of coffee. When we were at North Station this weekend, I could stand and see 2 Dunkin franchises. I couldn't get a picture of it because there was a newsstand in the way of one, so you'll have to trust me. I do run on Dunkin, but even I can't see the need for 2 options within 100 feet of each other.

I probably should have blogged this myself rather than hijacking your comments...
